11:25 AM Eastern Time – Text from Stephanie Evergreen
Full house for your session. Is your co-presenter still coming?
Ugh!!! I totally cancelled that a long time ago with AEA.
So Crystal isn’t coming?
Is there a projector? Maybe you can feed me in.
5 minutes notice, no preparation…
So I originally planned to attend #Eval19 this year. I had a pre-conference workshop accepted and a shorter presentation accepted for the main conference.
But then I was laid off.
With the uncertainty that comes with any layoff, the lack of financial support that comes with being unemployed, and the fact that my old employer is currently the association president, I decided to cancel. So I communicated that to evaluation association on August 1st.
But for some administrative reason, 2 and a half months later there was a room full of people waiting to hear from me…
The show must go on.
I couldn’t see the audience and I couldn’t remember the session I had proposed. But now all of a sudden I knew there was a room full of people staring at me, so I presented…
With the help of Stephanie’s texts I presented on the topic of creative digital reporting. Then, following a brief presentation, I took questions. All via text and chat.
I don’t think it was my best presentation, but I did receive positive feedback. And now I’ll have another presentation story to share for years to come.
